Rokolectiv x Shape+
Back to IRL, Rokolectiv brings a taste of the brand new SHAPE+ platform at Control Club.
PAN affiliated, Athens based musician Evita Manji is connecting the dots between the human experience, climate change, quantum physics and death. Through their carefully constructed practice of synthesis and sound design, led by choir inspired vocals, they fabricate musical worlds consisted of ever-expanding sonic organisms, and shapeless solid non-materials.
From Cairo via Berlin, Abadir directs his attention towards the dancefloor, melting jungle, Jersey club and footwork patterns into Arabic rhythms in a call and response that’s way beyond simple deconstruction. His recent album released on Shanghai imprint SVBKVLT is a sonic gem.
In a live performance by 7777 の天使, a wave of violent hits tears through but never imposes itself over the delicate harmonized vocals, drenched in almost weaponized auto-tune. These sounds are a call to the heart, no matter how loud and piercing the noise can get.
Pisitakun explores sonically his native Thailand’s political resistance trough a mixture of noise, traditional themes and dancefloor oriented beats. His journey as a solo artist began in 2014 around the time of the military coup d’état in Thailand, in which freedom of speech and the people’s ability to criticize the Thai monarchy was threatened with more punitive prison sentences.
YCS is one of Bucharest’s freshest talents to rise from the female identified Corp. platform. Her sets are going from club, bass, ballroom, gqom, and reggaeton to hardstyle and thrash, and switching from trap to pop and r&b. Expect irregular, dark, or heavy vibes – but not always.
